Big Sur National Park was closed, so we were told to go here instead. You have to drive down a very bumpy 2 mile road to get to the beach, but it is pretty surreal. There is a chemical in the sand that when it mixes with ocean water it turns the sand purple. You can see streaks of it on the beach. This beach was also a popular place for surfers and the wind. I’m spitting sand out of my mouth.
